MKs Muhammad Barakei (Hadash) and Ahmed Tibi (Ta'al) participated in a meeting on Monday that was organized in Morocco for the sake of Palestinian prisoners, calling them "conscientious freedom fighters."

According to Tibi, "it is not fair that one prisoner that was captured during his military service will be the most famous soldier in history only because he is Israeli, while at the same time Palestinian prisoners waste away in jail without anyone ever hearing about them or even knowing their names."

Barakei added that "these Palestinian prisoners have families, names, and hope." The two MKs called on an end to the Gilad Schalit ordeal in order that all prisoners - Israel and Palestinian alike - will return to their families.
